In celebration of Franklin’s timeless, brilliant legacy, Geffen/UMe has restored her earliest recordings.  The restored recordings will release on vinyl and digital March 22nd.

This newly restored and remastered edition has a striking new cover art, a new essay by Aretha Franklin biographer David Ritz, and a detailed history of the tracks’ various releases.

In 1956, when the album’s tracks were recorded at New Bethel Baptist Church, the Queen of Soul was a 14-year-old gospel singing sensation. She performed, accompanying herself on piano, as the opening act for her celebrated father, Rev. C. L. Franklin, whose recorded sermons were million-sellers. Aretha’s performances were first issued as singles in the 1950s, followed by LP releases by Chess/Checker.
